Feral Studio East Bay Stained Glass

Stained Glass. Who knew kitsch could be so rude?

Donna Karan- Urban Zen- Jewelry Display Cases

August 2016 I made these jewelry display cases for Donna Karan’s Urban Zen store in Hollywood. I used brass framing which I changed black with a patina. They are simple, strong and earthy stylish. They are not my design, but I am still excited…
